HC Deb 02 March 1960 vol 618 c1214
42. Mr. P. Noel-Baker

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will call for a report about the fatal accident which occurred in Derby on 8th January, 1960, at the junction of Derby Road and Kenilworth Avenue; and whether he will consider the recommendations put forward by the jury at the inquest on the pedestrian who was killed.

Mr. Hay

Yes, Sir. I will write to the right hon. Member when our inquiries are complete.

Mr. Noel-Baker

Did not the jury say that this was a very dangerous place? Will the hon. Gentleman consider instructing the divisional road engineer to meet local representatives with a view to providing the pedestrian crossing for which the local authority has asked?

Mr. Hay

The position is, as the right hon. Gentleman has said, that the jury made such an observation. Our divisional road engineer visited the site recently and discussions are now proceeding locally. That is involved in the report for which I have called. As soon as we get that report, I will write to the right hon. Gentleman about it.

Forward to
